I think Bono can get a little overboard. But I think it's because he REALLY wants to make a change in the world, so he does every possible thing to make that happen. And if you think about, he wouldn't be Bono if he didn't do all the things he does for poverty and AIDS... society thinks rockstars should be rockstars, not activists. I personally think Bono shouldn't stop what he's trying to do, but he should tone it done a bit, perhaps make it a bit more private if that's possible.

And as far as the piracy goes... yes. It's wrong, people shouldn't do it, and it's illegal. But Bono probably shouldn't have said somethign about losing money, which obviously set people off because he has the cash, and they obviously don't compared to him.

I think he should grow out his hair and then it'll be perfect

that's right.  it's what you get for being a celebrity and giving a s***.   unfortunately, anything political Bono says right now is going to just get jumped on by his detractors.  it sucks, but that's what happens.

Short hair all the way.  He looked too much like a prototypical "rock star" instead of the type of rock star he is.  I liked the long hair, but I love the short hair

Its hard to concentrate on the music when you have to see Edge like that.
Weird thing is, in ZooTv he looks more like he does now then he does in that pic.

I hate Pop U2 so much that I skip over them and pretend they dont exist.  I go right from Rattle and Hum U2 to Elevation U2.  The U2 music they put out in the 90's were great, I HATED their live persona.  Thats why I loved Elevation U2, they were all about the music and the fans instead of the a huge satirical stage and playing characters
